The Deribit Referral Program allows registered Deribit users (an “Deribit User”) to earn promotional payout by referring friends, colleagues, family or someone else to Deribit.

The Deribit Affiliate Program

Deribit allows current users to become an affiliate to refer new users to our platform. These new users can generate income because of trading fees collected by Deribit. An affiliate can earn 10% of these fees (and 20% fees for the first six months).
